(surname unknown) HAIRSTON1

Father*Peter HAIRSTON "The Immigrant"1 b. a 1695
Mother*Agnes "Irish Lady of Rank" (surname unknown)
(surname unknown) HAIRSTON was the daughter of Peter HAIRSTON "The Immigrant" and Agnes "Irish Lady of Rank" (surname unknown).1 
Marriage*(surname unknown) HAIRSTON married (surname unknown) PHILLIPS before 1782.1 

The will of Samuel Hairston (c1722-1782) written in 1782 mentions a nephew named Samuel Phillips and a niece named Jane Phillips. It appears that Samuel Hairston never married, so he did not have nieces and nephews by a wife. Therefore, Jane Phillips and Samuel Phillips would have been children of his sister who married a Mr. Phillips. Samuel's brothers, Andrew and Robert, did not mention Jane Phillips, Samuel Phillips or a sister in their wills.

The probate records of Samuel Hairston (c1722-1782) failed to mention that Jonathan Jackson's surname was Hays, Jane Phillips married Jonathan Jackson Hays. Jane Phillips Hays, her husband Jonathan Jackson Hays and Samuel Phillips are found in Franklin County, Georgia beginning in 1796. Jane Phillips Hays had sons named John Phillips Hays and Samuel Jackson Hays.

While trying to locate more information regarding this Hairston daughter I found a possible lead mentioning a Richard Phillips. On the 28 Feb 1769, Bedford County, Virginia - Samuel Hairston, Robert Hairston, Hugh Hairston and Richard Phillips witnessed a deed between Thomas Morris and Robert Harper for 270 acres on branches of Beaver Creek. (Bedford County Deed Book C-3, page 250).2,1,3,4
